It's Time to Write Your Novel
Make the commitment to fulfill your potential.
It's time to write your novel.
You're driven to write a great novel.
But you've reached a point where you're bogged down, lost, blocked.
Or you've finished your novel but keep facing rejection from agents and publishers.
Time to hire a writing coach.
Why am I the right coach?
I've coached hundreds of aspiring novelists, and I've helped each writer find his or her own voice,
vision, and story. That's always the magic - finding your way into the novel that only you can write.
I'm a successful novelist myself, so I know the novel-writing process inside and out. You'll learn where
best to focus your energy, you'll master the art and craft of great writing, and I'll keep you on task right
to the end of the project.
There are a lot of great writers out there. With novelists, the challenge is often simply to handle the
huge volume of a novel project and find a way through to the end. Many of my students finish their
novels, find agents, and ultimately find success in publishing their novels. It's a wonderful journey.
I've honed the art of teaching novel writing at
• Harvard University
• Brown University
• University of Denver
• University of Colorado, Denver
• Lighthouse Writers Workshop
And I have top credentials from
• Stanford University - Wallace Stegner Fellow in Creative Writing
• Brown University - MA in Creative Writing
• University of California, Berkeley - BA in English Literature
